** Note: On the DVD is a section dedicated to Subway Sect amongst the many bands which is shot in and around Rehearsal Rehearsals.

Much speculation has surrounded the dates but courtesy of a
German Fanzine with tour dates... it is confirmed the band played Munich on the 4th, Frankfurt on the 5th and Hamburg on the 6th.


The recent DVD release of 'Punk in London' has new footage from this gig and identifies Munich as the venue.

The DVD runs from the start of the gig and Londons Burning which carries on into Complete Control (1min 5sec). Theres the first of 3 interview bits, followed by Hate and War and a second interview seguement.

The DVD track listing says Hate and War is on the same track as Police and Thieves but its not. Its on the track before with the interviews. Police and Thieves runs into some more new footage, The Prisoner which is edited after 1min 20 secs followed by another interview.

Finally Janie Jones, more extra footage which runs into Garageland.

Previously the video had 3 tracks plus a snippet of Complete Control and brief interview where Mick complains about gigs in Germany and the audiences.
